We have more than twenty years of experience in three main areas: civil and commercial litigation, international judicial assistance, and arbitration
Civil and Commercial Litigation
I prosecute and defend civil and commercial lawsuits for businesses, non-profit institutions, and people. My experience includes high-stakes disputes between business owners, claims involving fraud or unfair and deceptive trade practices, complex contract and license disputes in many industries, claims against fiduciaries, professional advisors, and agents, claims against foreign governments, real estate and leasing cases, and cross-border commercial disputes. I have tried cases and argued appeals in the Massachusetts and federal courts, including the Supreme Judicial Court and federal courts of appeals.
International Judicial Assistance
I use a federal statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1782, to obtain evidence in the United States that my clients can use in lawsuits abroad. I also help American companies and individuals when they need help abroad taking evidence, serving process, or enforcing American judgments. And I help clients enforce foreign judgments in the United States. I have a wide network of colleagues around the world with whom I partner to help Americans in need of help overseas.
